Heart of a Dragon: One of Thirteen New Tales from Stoking the Flames!

When an impending evil threatens to rain down from the sky, fate demands action from the most unlikely place—a terminally ill woman. But even with a fierce warrior at her side, does a single dragon stand a chance at saving the world?

.....When a handsome alien crash lands on Lyra Sohns’ planet, everything changes. Could it be love? No, she marked that possibility off long ago. Besides, what does she have to offer? She can’t walk. A disease is killing her. All she can do is sit on her balcony, watching the great dragons of Andelyl soar through the sky. But still…does she dare listen to the voice of hope whispering in her ear?
.....Rusch Helyx has fought for the Tav Legion longer than he cares to remember. There must be a point to the blur of battles and the struggle to survive. But what choice does he have? When enemy fire blasts them out of hyperspace, mortally crippling their vessel, Rusch and his comrades abandon ship, spiraling to the surface of yet another planet. There he discovers a sexy redhead who needs his help…and, suddenly, the Universe holds meaning.
.....As time runs short, the odds stack against them. Can Lyra and Rusch survive the dangerous risks they’re forced to take to save the ones they love?

Heart of a Dragon: L.J. Garland - 4****Stars
Lyra sits on the balcony in her home watching the city dragons fly. Lyra has a disease that is attacking her vital organs and there is nothing that can be done for her. She now sits in a wheelchair and watching her beloved dragons is what gives her the greatest pleasure. It is her brother Ralion that looks after since the death of their mother but everything in her life changes when aliens attack the city and kill the dragons that have been guarding it forever. The weapons in the city are no match for the creatures attacking them and for the men dressed in armor.

Ralion manages to hide her in the pantry behind some sacks of grain and then runs out to distract them. He is caught but his attempt at distraction doesn't work when one of the soldiers enters the pantry with his gun raised and looks Lyra right in the eye. Something amazing happens because the soldier feels a bond with Lyra and senses that she is dying. He leaves her behind to die at her own pace.

From the moment Rusch saw Lyra he couldn't get her out of his mind. His feelings for her were something he never experienced before but he was part of the Legion and had a job to do. Rusch was just one of hundreds taken from their planet and brought into the Legion. Lyra knows that she will die soon but wants to save her brother. She had been working on a secret project for a year and now it was time to finish it. She was building a dragon and if she could finish it before she died maybe, just maybe she could do some good against the aliens.

This is just a small taste of what happens in this book but I don't want to reveal too much. Needless to say alot happens, some good and some bad.

Heart Of Dragon.
By L. J. Garland.
This one is really different.
Lyra is dying, and she knows she hasn't got long left. She loves to sit on her balcony and watch the dragons flying. One day invaders come and completely destroy everything she knows.
Rusch is one of the invaders. He us sad with what he has had to do, but it us necessary. Why can't he follow the rules when faced with a sick young woman.
The invaders are shifters, but not like any you by have read about before. Our heroine defies all the laws of nature.
Really good fun.
